Alex lives his life by the book. That is what is to be expected of the Prince of Wales, after all. And he enjoys order and predictability, so while the tabloids generally find him a snooze he’s perfectly content to live his life under the radar, placid and comfortable.
Serena Christensen is Hollywood’s latest It Girl, unafraid to call studios on their bullshit and used to causing scenes that wind up plastered all over the internet. She’s wild and exciting and thrives on the unexpected.
But when one drunken night in Las Vegas brings the two of them together they just might end up making one royal mistake.

You know what happens when you met with another blogger?? You end up requesting more books from NetGalley XD. That’s what happened with me with Cristina a few weeks while we were at Starbucks and we ended up requesting A Royal Mistake because it looked cute. I can tell you that this ended up being cute but it was too short for me to really love it. While this might look like a full length book it ended up being a really short novella and I read it in less than an hour this morning while on my way to work.
First of all, I did like the characters. I had a few problems with Serena and didn’t connect with her at all but I do understand why she was like that. I did like Alex a lot and he’s a really prince. These two had a great chemistry but I think this would have been a more enjoyable book if it was a full length novel because this was way too fast. It would have been way better if there was a bigger character and relationship development. I still enjoyed it nevertheless.
What I really liked was the way the story was told. This novella is told in a dual POV but not in a linear way. You have Alex’s POV on the present day and Serena’s POV in the past, even if the past is the day before. I did like that little twist and I also liked the writing style.
Overall, while this was a short read it was still enjoyable. The only reason my rating isn’t higher is because I feel like this story had a potential to be more developed and because there was something missing. I still think you should read it if you want a fast but cute romance.
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If you haven’t read it would you read it?
